Annette Schultz of Dexter High School and Dexter Community Aquatic Club (DCAC) has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Louisville. Schultz is a sprint freestyler and backstroker, and she’s won four individual Michigan Division II titles.
TOP TIMES (SCY)
- 100 free 50.01
- 200 free 1:47.89
- 100 back 54.71
- 200 back 1:58.66
Schultz is the 2x defending Michigan Division II champion in both the 100 free and 200 free, having won both races in 2015 as a sophomore and then again in 2016 as a junior.
With her best times, Schultz would’ve scored in C finals in the 200 free and 200 back at the 2017 ACC Championships. Her strengths address a lineup hole for Louisville, which has struggled to build a deep backstroke group and mid-distance free group of late. For example, Louisville only had 2 scorers in the 100 back and 2 in the 200 back at ACCs last season, while Mallory Comerford was the only ACC 800 relay split faster than 1:46 (though she was very fast herself at 1:41.12).
Schultz will get a year of training alongside Comerford, a year with backstroker Alina Kendzior, and three seasons with current freshman backstroker Ashlyn Schoof.
She joins Kelly Tichenor and Alena Kraus in Louisville‘s class of 2022.
